"i am tired of this job now! I am feeling sick being lecturer... need to read, read and only read whole time!!!! oooohhhhhhhhhh!" : its my usual complain!
"u r right bhumika, i m also feeling tired of this profession.... people think we need to just work for 1-2 hours a day, but who knows we need to read for so many hours! its so boring! what @ starting some new business?? suggest me some interesting work that i can opt for!!! " -- my cabinmate SK asked me wid same frustration... [ me n sk share a cabin in our department, its fun to be wid her as she s too straight , tran
sparent, and honest about all aspects of life! unlike me she speaks a little[so i get chance to speak more n
more n more!]..... ]
after discussion as usual SK sank back to her work! [she usually likes to keep herself busy in some work! Again not like me!!!... but ooops!]
n my mind got a topic to think! [ i love thinking - on the topic or off the topic!]
really .... life of lecturer is not as fun as all feel! all others always think like - lecturer have so easy and soft life! just take 1-2 hours per day load and have fun for rest of time! have a goo
d salary, lots of respect.. what else one needs in a job????
hummm... a lecturer do have 16-18 hours load per week .. but to teach 1 hour's lecture we need to read a lot! [minimum 3-4 hours/day!] and not a simple reading... we need to make a through reading... need to clear all concepts, and be able to present ourselves in a way that can solve ne
queries raised by students!
some persons love reading! i also love reading!
wait.................... i love non-technical reading[literature....]! [ooop ..... i m in wrong job perhaps!!!]
may be..... may be not!
but really do i think i am in wrong job????
naaah... not really!
humm.... as u all know i have been working as well as commuting from last 5 years.... and have met so many people from different background! some worked for fun, some for food, some for family, some for individuality....
"A" was a nurse... we used to travel together... she was working at ahmedabad in a private hospital and living at nadiad.. she was commuting from last 20 years ... and was doin night duty from last 5 years with salary of 3000 merely ! ---- is she enjoying what she s doing?
"B" is an uneducated woman, whos husband is medically unfit to work, and son died in accident leaving his wife n son behind.... "B" sells artificial ornaments in train daily in ladies compartment to earn
bread for the whole family! how much she will be earning monthlly where her whole business runs almost on "Udhari" ???..... --- now when its tough to earn dinner n lunch for everyday , who cares for enjoyment???
"C" is a men in his late 50's.... at the age of retirement, who was once in NDA and spended all his income n savings for son's education n wedding... he is doin job of security in a small firm near his home, his son and daughter-in-law dnt care for him! " --- he has the proper dignifying job ?
"D" is a mechanical engineer in his mid 20's... a scholar an intelligent engineer... he runs his fathe
r's diamond business [willingly/unwillingly] ,which has no relation wid what he studied at all! --- is he feeling job satisfaction???
"E" is doctor, gynecologist.... she used to work i n a well known hospital of baroda and had a bright future,,, now she has just duty to cook, eat, shop, be with kids, make the family happy [ she has been converted as housewife forcefully doin emotional atyachar!!!! ] --- she s feeling sick or frustrated???
then why i am the only one who cries always for so called "job satisfaction" n all?
